A Wild Irish Year - Tara Shine

Starting Sunday 13th May on RTÉ One at 6:30pm, ‘A Wild Irish Year’ with Dr Tara Shine is a captivating new four-part series bringing us all across the country from our wild coasts, mountains and woodlands to farms, towns and cities. Increasingly we are retreating indoors and out of touch with the fabric of the land that sustains us. We sit in awe watching films detailing the wonders of the natural world, but as a nation often seem reluctant to get out and explore it for ourselves. Revealing the deep bonds our ancestors once had with the year’s natural cycles, this new series is a clarion call for people to renew connections with the stunning island we call home and the wildlife we share it with.
